yes there is a switch; read this could help you.

info is on the 1997

check the fuse the backup lights is a 15amp fuse

If you have electrical skills you can place an Ohm meter across the switch after you get it out and then press the ball in to see if the circuit closes.
on the right side of the transmission there are two electrical connections plugged into the transmission. The front most of these two is the backup light switch. the wires going to it should be Pink and Light Green.

If you place the vehicle in any gear except reverse you can easily remove this switch. Just unclip the wire and use a 24mm deep well socket. The switch has a small ball on the end of it that is depressed when the vehicle is in Reverse.
